Fabulous place, we go as often as we can xx
Really enjoyed, fab food and great place
Great selection of food and top rate service
Had a lovely afternoon tea for a birthday treat. The tables were all kept apart so felt comfortable with the whole dining experience. The service and food were both great and even came away with leftovers in a box of the cakes we could not manage. We recommend to anyone.
The waitress was lovely. Very friendly, professional and helpful. She couldn’t do enough for us and always spoke to us with a smile.
Always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. Many thanks to Adele for a great service, loving this smile of yours and happy attitude!!
I have been coming here since it's inception on Richmond Street and brought many of my friends and family. I always have a good time, love the food and the service has always been exceptional even at busy times. It is with regret that I say the service on this particular occasion was somewhat dissatisfying. Our table was booked for 1.15pm. We arrived early and were seated at 1pm. We ordered and everything was great up till the end. At approx. 2.25pm we were asked if we wanted our remaining cakes in a box which I thought odd and ten minutes later the waitress served us with the bill saying they needed the table (only 90mins to eat and chat)? The place was dead and I was made to feel rushed and unwelcome. We quickly paid and left.
Lovely atmosphere and amazing staff – attentive and efficient. Great experience – thank you!
Hi, This is the first time we have visited here and it was lovely. We were seated on the upstairs area which had a very authentic Alice in Wonderland theme. The slice of cake I received was huge! The only issue I had was that I had booked to be seated downstairs in the enchanted forest but got seated in the AIW area instead.
Great cake. Nice salad but disappointing croutons. Excellent milkshake.
Such a stunning venue! We had a great afternoon having took my mum for afternoon tea. The food was delicious! Staff were lovely. Very easy to book and work with covid restrictions.
The only thing that let my visit down was the toilets. They were not very inviting, They had tissue Paper all over the floor and no toilet rolls in the toilets.
They were rushing us to leave after 40 minutes of arriving for our afternoon tea.
What a wonderful wonderful 60th Birthday present!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea with you! The food was delicious and really fresh! I will definitely be coming again! Thank you! 😃
The staff female staff where friendly but the male staff we found was rude and grumpy, they did not smile or make you feel welcomed. Hope this changes.
Great afternoon tea for adults and children!
Very pleasant young lady looked after us .
Great food and service in a very safe environment. Even with the use of PPE the staff still manage to get over the usual warm welcome. On a personal note, well done on the gluten free options ! So many places could follow your standards here too !
Afternoon tea was delicious, lots of fancy cakes and warm scone was lovely. We boxed up & took home some as there was loads. Sandwich fillings were very generous & tasty
My favourite place to eat. Ida always goes above and beyond to make the experience at RTR so relaxing and comforting.
Waiter was very poor, unattentive and we paid for 3 afternoon teas, and it came on one platter! Very disappointed
Always a pleasure when we go here the food and service are always amazing
Thank you so much for your wonderful review!
Excellent only issue is size of portions they are too big. I will definitely visit again
Hi Ruth Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback!
Had a lovely late lunch service was outstanding It felt a bit atmosphereless but I think that’s due to the COVID pandemic which is a shame and the menu seems to have drastically shrunk since previous visits again not sure if this is because of COVID But we did have a lovely leisurely late lunch food was gorgeous
